How tall is Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt's Height

5ft 11 (180.3 cm)

American actor best known for movies such as Se7en, Fight Club, Snatch, Oceans Films, Troy, Inglorious Bastards, Interview With The Vampire and World War Z. A newspaper article on heights (washington post) quoted as saying people had seen Pitt put down 5ft 10 on an audition form for his height. Well, before he was A-list, aged 24 he wrote his own height as 5ft 11 in a teen magazine profile. At times he can appear taller, but with impeccable posture and at times, in the last few years, cuban type heels, that is a given. Even his good friend George Clooney was wise to his footwear, saying once in USA Today that "He's tall. He's like 6-1. It's irritating."

Rob Pitt is around the 5'10 mark. Where did you get 5'11? Just watch all his movies he usually has advantage on his shoes. I vote to change the listing come on

One of Sly's favourite photos...Pitt, not so much, he doesn't look quite as happy as Sly!

Hijoputamus: Hey man! Good to see you to!Thanks! Yah its not 5inch difference between them, so many pics pretty much Any video shows it either his boots 3-5cm plus insole his boots or hiding with bootcut jeans or ankle being raised above shoe clearly show his height is well below this listing. Good to see you to man!💪
Hijoputamus said on 14/Feb/19
Marcus, good to see you! Have a look at the pic of Brad and Angelina walking together and Brad having footwear advantage. Can anyone see a 5 inch difference? Hell no...!
Click Here

Don’t care if they are standing straight or any other silly excuse because BOTH have the same posture and both walking and Brad should be clearly MUCH taller.

Legends of the fall scene with Hopkins is a great proof, Marcus. Well spotted!
MarcusTheSwede said on 14/Feb/19
”Mileno5”9” Thanks man I do my best to find some truth to it all and this and lot of other clips really say more then words. Thanks man.
CDS said on 13/Feb/19
@marcustheswede: I thought the same thing about those 2 films. When I 1st saw a trailer for, meet Joe black, I recall thinking, was brad THAT much taller than Hopkins?? Then , later on, I'm rewatching, legends of the fall, the scene on the porch, and you can clearly see there's very little height difference, if any between the 2. I don't think Hopkins was taller, but certainly not the spread there was in that later film..

Rob take a look what @MarcusTheSwede just post! First 30 seconds showing Brad Pitt is not over 5'10 or 5'9.75. well done man! Excellent clip:

MarcusTheSwede said on 12/Feb/19
Call bull on this height.Brad is a notorious lift/heel wear guy. Look at him in Legends Of The Fall with 5”8 Anthony Hopkins When He hugs Brad in this scene you can see even with heels he hardly as tall as AH, or at best same. Brad is: 175cm without his massive heels or/and height insoles. In this scene that Brad then would be 5-6 mc taller then Hopkins is ridicilous and doubt he grew tall after this movie. Click Here Brad is at best between 175-176cm not a centimeter more without massive boots insoles. Thanks
hridoy said on 6/Feb/19
yes he is 5'11".tall guy
JustForFun said on 3/Feb/19
He is not over 5'10.75 100%. Safe to guess that mark Rob. Maybe yo can argue 5'10.5- .75 for Brad
Pierre said on 2/Feb/19
In addition to my comment on 01/Feb =in this pic= Click Here i think Robbie slouch a little bit because = here = Click Here he looks easily higher than Matt Bomer
JustForFun said on 2/Feb/19
Rob you should list not only on your guess but in ours too.. Average is always on point or closer to the truth. Why your guess is always higher? Take a look on Arnold's, Clint page etc.. Please new changes or downgrades for 2019.. Unfair lsting Brad over 180.. is a joke. He is max a 179 guy
Editor Rob
Remember I may not have seen Brad, but from those who have worked with him and I have met, 5ft 10-10.5 doesn't add up for me.
Pierre said on 1/Feb/19
Comparison Jimmy Fallon / Brad .Now Jimmy Fallon /Stephen Colbert listed 5"10.5'(50 votes are giving him 5"10.3') in apparently same heels(i think sometimes Jimmy wear lifts and this time probably not) = Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here .
Brad /Jimmy Fallon = Click Here Brad force his posture but looks shorter than Jimmy imo Click Here = here they are looking the same height but by their feet i guess Brad a little bit closer to the camera

@JustForFun

Brad is a bit shorter than Jimmy Fallon 5'11. I honestly believe celebrity PR has a part to play in listings on this website. There are numerous photos of Justin Bieber being posted with Neymar, Ed Sheeran & Joe Jonas to suggest he is 5'8/5'9. His footwear suggest an lift advantage.
JustForFun said on 30/Jan/19
I'm sure a 5'10 or 5'11 guy can guess much better how tall is Brad Leo, Arnold, etc than a 5'8 guy. I know Rob is good but I'm honest
JustForFun said on 30/Jan/19
@jriggs you guys are wasting your time commenting here. Rob lists as he thinks and 90% never changes or downgrades
jriggs said on 29/Jan/19
He needs a downgrade, confirm lift wearer. More 5'10

@Rising: I tend to agree Up into the mid to late 2000s at least. But I haven’t seen much of him recently. I would say somewhere in the 5’10” range. but you’re right he has pretty good posture. It’s tough to get his down to the fraction tho. At times I could see a slightly strong 5’10” then maybe a weak 5’11 at other times
Pierre said on 26/Jan/19
Click Here =at 18:10 you can watch Brad's shoes in "Across the Tracks".Rick wear Converses.Watch too the scene since 17:13 to 17:22
JustForFun said on 25/Jan/19
5'10 1/8 max. Rob need a downgrade. I never see changes and people agree me. Most people agree and you can see average at 5'10.5. Yu must hear our opinnions and change some listings. 5'10 guys guess and know how a real 5'11 guy looks
Jtm said on 23/Jan/19
no way 5'11 even on his best day. i watched thelma and louise again a couple days ago and despite the solid footwear advantage he was still noticeably shorter than geena davis. go compare alec baldwin with davis in beetlejuice. baldwin had shoes on and i think davis was barefoot but he was taller. that tells you 5'11 is far from the truth.
Bradley said on 22/Jan/19
Great Youtube of the LD & BP in the QT directed stuff. I'm with Justforfun, I'm raising my BP hand to 5' 10 1/4". I thought it was me in the drivebys with the haircut. Guess I'm stuck in 1969.

Comparisons Brad/Rick Schroder = Rick Schroder/Joël Higgins (listed 5"11.5' in web;he's in his 70 in the pics of 2013)/Erin Gray(Click Here Rob listed her 5"7' i don't know her shoes next to Rick/Joêl) = Click Here Click Here Click Here .Actor D.B.

JustForFun said on 19/Jan/19
Rob here's a good clip where you can see Brad Pitt walking. He looks tallers than I thought but I guess there are 2 reasons: 1) He looks slim than the past years like he has lost some weight. 2)Footwear I think he has boots there. I always stimated 5'10 for him in his peak but now I guess he was or is 5'10 1/4 or 5'10 3/8 looks 5'11.5 with his boots on the clip. Pause second 0.20 and watch 0 to 25 seconds

I see a 0% chance Brad has lost half an inch. In fact, he generally looks taller than he did in 1989 likely due to posture and shoes.

Brad will be in custom big heels, Redford not. Brad is 5' 10".
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Jan/19
@Pierre: I don't know about that for reasons mentioned(though I agree with your criteria for good pics) but here's a few different pics of them on set and note their clothing: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Whether Brad wore the baseball cap or the green shirt, it seems he was wearing the 2"+ Campus boots: Click Here Click Here while you can see Redford wore more normal looking boots in that first pic showing Brad's shoes. The on set pics aren't great since Brad is leaning in the first and 4th while ground level is unknown being outside and Redford has his arm around Brad's shoulder in the first 2, but Brad is only an inch taller in the first pic and then might edge Redford in the second, but doesn't look taller at all in the other two. I think Brad was clearly taller in the film, but you wouldn't expect them so close in all these on set pics with Brad presumably in big heels.
Pierre said on 7/Jan/19
@Rising=Rising,i agree the best pics are when two people are not walking and are standing in the same posture very close one to the other,at the same distance to the camera.Brad and Robert walking is just one pic but by their respective posture i would guess Brad more max in the same range height as Robert in this pic than when he wear comfortable shoes.But it's just a picture...
Pierre said on 7/Jan/19
@Rising=Rising,in the second pic you posted on 06/jan/19 Mel is closer to the camera, his left foot(rear foot) is even probably closer to the camera than the left foot(front foot) of Robert,so Mel has a good advantage of camera imo
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Jan/19
@Hijo: I don't completely trust pics where we can't see feet, but it's not that I take no interest in them either. I mean even if Redford was wearing cowboy boots -- as he sometimes does -- he still looks taller against Pitt than I'd expect so other than that, would Redford be tip-toeing or standing on a box in that photoshoot? I suppose it's possible, but I seriously doubt Redford would do that there, hence my interest. And the problem with walking pics is height can vary quite a bit if you're in different parts of your stride and I don't know how to tell with any certainty whether you're in the same part of your stride. Maybe you can get an impression, but I don't believe you can tell with any certainty from a still taken mid-stride. I'll show you an early example that led me to this conclusion. At one point, I thought there might be something to the Mel Gibson is 5'8" stuff because of a few stills like this: Click Here This was long before Downey wore lifts and in fact, Mel looked taller in the film that still was taken from(about 3 cm taller, imo) but stills like that of them walking make Downey look taller. Yet in this still of them walking from the same film, Mel looks taller: Click Here Another example was when a scene in Tango and Cash where Stallone and Kurt Russell(or possibly their body doubles) were walking barefoot. Myself and another poster went back and forth taking stills of the short scene with different results from the same few seconds. Since then, I've never used walking pics as part of my argument either. You go up and down as you walk, one foot is off the ground or you bend your knee at different times. I think video of two people walking can be useful, but a still of just one split second of that is much trickier.
Hijoputamus said on 5/Jan/19
@rising, my friend, you said some other time you don’t trust pics you can’t see their feet. So I’m shocked you like that pic with Redford. What’s wrong with walking? BOTH are walking and he has footwear advantage. Now, can you spot a 4-5 inch difference? I guess not. Is Angelina 5ft8 or 5ft9? I don’t think so. More like 5ft6 max. So Brad could easily be 5ft9.
In that site you can see many pics of Pitt clearly wearing lifts inside his trainers. It’s so obvious.
Bradley said on 4/Jan/19
Pretty funny photo getting owned by Redford....they should be about the same. 5' 10" Hippo.
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Jan/19
@Hijo: As I said before that pic was posted, I only judge height in pictures where two people are standing, not walking. It doesn't look like it'd be that big of a difference, but I'm just guessing based on impression. I'm more interested in this pic on that page with Redford: Click Here What the hell is going on there?! I don't know if you're referring to me with that fanboy comment, but I'm not a Pitt fanboy(I'm a bigger fan of both Douglas and Gibson) and I comment on many things. I comment all the time on Pitt looking 5'10" range in Across the Tracks with Rick Schroder and Pitt appearing below 5'11" for multiple Fury events. I never said Pitt is just 2" shorter than Bana either -- Bana is at least 3" taller, very possibly more.
Johnnie said on 3/Jan/19
@Hijo uuuuh , that pic with Angelina in the linked page is pure GOLD!
Pitt honestly struggles a lot to look like a full 5'10 there..
Vibram said on 3/Jan/19
Rob, could Pitt have been 179cm peak morning height in the 80's, 90's and 00's?
I think he's probably about 178.3cm peak morning now at age 55, and slips to 177cm by late evening.
Editor Rob
Whilst he has looked 5ft 10 on some occasions, the bigger picture for me is closer to 5ft 11 than 10.
Hijoputamus said on 3/Jan/19
@rising, what about the pic with Angelina. Brad has foot advantage. Is that a 5 inch difference? I don’t think so.
Why when comparing Bana with Pitt the fanboys see a 2 inch difference when it’s way more and here with Amgelins where I it should be a bigger difference you don’t even comment? It’s obvious the guy is under 5ft10
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Jan/19
@Hijoputamus: I don't see what's weird about that. Douglas was confirmed as a lift wearer by his shoemaker. As soon as I see definitive evidence of Pitt wearing internal lifts or an actual elevator shoe then I'll say so. I've never said Pitt doesn't wear them either. I don't remember Rob saying Pitt had clear lifts/elevators either.
Bradley said on 2/Jan/19
Matt wears thick boots, big tread. I have no life, I'm debating about Mel's height on a computer rather than debating a 7 iron (soft) or hard 8 at 150 out at La Quinta on the 4th.
Hijoputamus said on 2/Jan/19
@rising, it’s weird how you spot Michael Douglas lifts and can’t spot Brads.
Lads, have a look at the pic of Brad and Angelina.

Rising - 174 cm said on 31/Dec/18
@Pierre: Yeah, Michael Douglas has been under 5'8" for years. He might have been 5'8" flat when Wall Street 2 came out, but Shia was taller than him. Never trust the arm on the shoulder in pics where we can't see feet. Remember, Michael would go on his toes even when he was his peak height: Click Here Here's another from Cannes: Click Here Douglas is also a big lift wearer and wore lifts in his Desert boots for that film. Check this out: Click Here Click Here Look how long his lower legs are compared to above his knees. I never judge height from walking/mid-stride pics either, only standing. I remember Shia was generally taller than Douglas because I saw pics on set when they filmed the movie in 2009 and I already thought Shia was only 5'8.5" so that's when I realized Douglas has shrunk to no more than 5'8". Here's a couple of on set photos, though I don't trust ground level outdoors: Click Here Click Here Click Here I'd find some better premiere photos of Michael and Shia if I had more time.

@Mister lennon: Yeah, Redford was also over an inch taller than Brando at the end of The Chase and Brando was wearing cowboy boots.

@Brad: I've never seen Matt wear anything unusual. Fairly thick boots, sure, but nothing even like Pitt wore for Spy Game or even those Guidi boots. I still don't get the Mel at 5'8" flat stuff, but then I guess I don't have to.
Mister lennon said on 31/Dec/18
Redford was 5'10 peak and taller than newman, who was 5'9 peak. Redford was also taller than 5'9 robert de niro. He was clearly 5'10. Now, he is about 5'9.
Newman was a solid 5'9 peak. He was taller than marlon brando, who was a weak 5'9 peak.
Pitt minimum is a solid 5'10.
Bradley said on 30/Dec/18
Matt wears bricks sometimes. He owned a 5' 6.5" G in lifts, hard, outside The Plaza. Naw, I'm in with 5-8 with Mel. Sly peak 5' 8.5", now still hanging at 5-8.
Pierre said on 30/Dec/18
@Rising=Imo Rising it's difficult to see who is taller than the other here because when i see all the video when Robert is standing closer to the camera at 0:15 he look taller than Paul and at 2:22 Paul is standing closer and look taller than Robert.
Shia Labeouf is looking a little bit shorter than Robert but Shia looks sometimes shorter than Michael Douglas(2010) listed 5"8'now(but 44 votes are giving 5"7.55'now in his page) when Michael is standing straight= Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
@Hijoputamus @Rising=by all the pics i have seen i would place Robert Redford a little bit taller than Paul Newman,but all the votes in their pages are giving finally Paul under 5"9' and Robert under 5"10'in his prime and under 5"9' now
Hijoputamus said on 30/Dec/18
@rising, Redford lived on his lifts. The fact of the matter is that Pitt is not 2 inches taller than Redford.
Have a look at these pics and particularly the one with Angelina where Brad has foot advantage. Is that a real 5ft10ish guy? I don’t think so.

Click Here

In The Sting Paul was taller than Redford.
HonestSlovene said on 30/Dec/18
@Bradley I agree, though I still think Pitt is slightly closer to 5'11" (though nothing over that).
Rising - 174 cm said on 29/Dec/18
@Hijo: I don't think Redford was shorter than Newman. They could look very close in The Sting, as you can see in this clip: Click Here but if anything, it looks like Redford just edges him out, imo: Click Here We're closer on Newman since I think he was anywhere between 5'9"-5'9.5", very similar to Steve McQueen. I don't think it's a matter of lying either, but estimates vary as you know from meeting Arnold a few years ago. I know someone who saw Redford in NY in the 70's and simply said he was average height. Personally, the absolute shortest I could buy for Redford's peak would be around 5'9.5". He was taller than Woody Harrelson in Indecent Proposal and a 76 year old Redford was still taller than Shia Labeouf: Click Here

@Brad: Mel isn't 5'8" flat. Never understood why you don't at least give him the half inch you give Sly. 5'9" just like Sigourney said. Not sure why you include Damon. You were right about Wahlberg wearing lifts sometimes, but I've still seen nothing to suggest Damon does.
Pierre said on 29/Dec/18
My guess = young Brad in his 20/25 = around 5"9.5'/5"9.75'.Brad in his 40 and now= around 5"9'/5"9.25'
Pierre said on 29/Dec/18
@Hijoputamus=I think too Brad's shoes are looking a little bit more advantageous than Robert's shoes which in this comparison are looking very flat and slim,Brad's shoes are probably not elevator shoes here but generous heel and sole.around one centimeter of advantage imo
Bradley said on 29/Dec/18
Big tread with Redford. God, BP looks like me in that shot. Fonzie: "Whoah".
Hijoputamus said on 29/Dec/18
@Pierre, those shoes aren’t classic. They’re thick rubber sole shoes. In any case, people that met Redford in the 70s put him under 5ft9 being generous. He was clearly shorter than 5ft9 Newman. There’s a guy that was in the filming of SpyGame and puts both around 5ft9 barefoot.
Check Rob’s Redford listing comments.
I seriously doubt that grown people that met him in the 70s are gonna lie.

@Rising, Pitt is taller than Redford plus those heels and they looked same height. I’m confused plus Redford is nowhere near 5ft10. He was shorter than 5ft9ish Paul Newman. These Hollywood guys trick us too much.

Pierre said on 27/Dec/18
@Rising=i want to say =imo there is more probability Brad has a lift in his shoes than Mel has a lift in his cow boy boots
Rising - 174 cm said on 27/Dec/18
@Hijo: Probably minimum 2" heel and maximum 2.5" heel. But that style has a pretty thick sole too: Click Here And Rob lists Redford at 5'10.5" peak, but considering he struggled to look as tall as 5'10" Robert Shaw in The Sting, I think 5'10" flat is more likely.

@Timson: I think that was the point, though. Achilles was supposed to be big like most Greek heroes so I don't think they'd want him looking noticeably shorter in the film.

Rising - 174 cm said on 27/Dec/18
Comparing both to Anthony Hopkins, there'd be nothing surprising about Mel looking 1.5" shorter with half an inch footwear advantage over Brad. Here's young Mel and peak Hopkins: Click Here Click Here and now Brad with 60 year old Hopkins: Click Here Click Here If you watch The Bounty(1984), Hopkins was slightly taller than Mel if anything. At best, they were the same height and often in the same shoes. Pitt could look 3" taller than Hopkins in Meet Joe Black. The least I could see is 2.5". I had always assumed Hopkins had shrunk to 5'8.5" by 1997 and that Pitt had worn lifts, but it doesn't look so obvious one way or the other. Either way, it's hard for me to believe Pitt wasn't at least a couple of inches taller than Hopkins in 1997.
Bradley said on 26/Dec/18
Mel is 5-8, he's never been caught like those height clowns Vin and Damon. Pitt is 5-10 like Vin. He's packing wedge in his dress boots, big time. I can be 6-8 with ease in Pitt Porties. Mel's cowboy heeled and wedged boots are classic height enhancing footwear. These guys are all wanting to be 6 foot tall, Vin with the lead by a mile.
Rising - 174 cm said on 26/Dec/18
@Pierre: I don't see the case for that at all since I've seen a lot more evidence of Mel wearing lifts and elevators than Pitt in addition to tip-toeing for photos. If Pitt is also a big lift wearer then he's a lot more subtle than Mel or better at hiding it. And in that case, Mel has the bigger external heels so I don't see how it could be more probable that Pitt had the advantage.
Timson said on 26/Dec/18
Doesn’t look drastically shorter than bana in Troy. Must be 5-11ish. Anything under would be noticeable with a 6-2 co star.

Watch that heel.
How tall was Redford?
Original said on 25/Dec/18
5'10... 5'10.25" something like that.
Pierre said on 25/Dec/18
@Rising= I think the probability is bigger Brad has an help in his shoes than Mel in his Cow-boy boots
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Dec/18
@Brad: No, laughable is assuming you not only know there's lifts inside, but know how big they are and then passing off those assumptions as facts. Didn't know you had x-ray vision. To show just how pointless this is, you must believe Mel and Brad's lifts cancel each other out to fit with your 5'8" for Mel and 5'10" for Pitt.
Mister lennon said on 23/Dec/18
5'9 is a joke for pitt.
A strong 5'10 at minimum. And a weak 5'11 as maximum.
Bradley said on 22/Dec/18
"Fraction more than one inch" is point blank laughable. He's 5' 10" with custom wedged dress boots; packed. Leonardo and Brad will be even up.
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Dec/18
@CDS: Actually, they do look like high tops so yeah it's possible, but he actually only looks an inch shorter than Ed O'Neill in comparison to Schwartz, but that could be the camera or Schwartz dropping some height with Pitt. But as you know, Mel is a regular lift wearer himself. He was looking about Jimmy Kimmel's height in cowboy boots half a year after those backstage stills with Pitt. So even if Pitt does have lifts in his boots, there's a good chance Mel does as well. And yeah, Pitt did look as tall as Norton at that event, but I think Norton is more of a weak 6' or 182 cm himself and a sloucher while Pitt has good posture.

@Hijo: Yeah, I know someone who saw Affleck up close a year or two ago and they said his toupee was very obvious in person. As for Pitt's height, I've heard conflicting accounts. I don't know if you remember the poster Frank2, but Rob can confirm he worked in Hollywood for decades and he was 5'11" himself. He insisted that Pitt(in running shoes) was at least 5'11", if not 6 feet. I've also heard Pitt described as tall, but on the other hand Kelly Brook said she was disappointed at how short Brad was, which is interesting because she dated Jason Statham who is only around 5'8.5". I've said it before, but there was a newspaper article around '95 or '96 that stated rather matter of factly "Brad Pitt is 5-10 in his bare feet" so that's been around for decades. I read that Russell Crowe story too, it was supposedly Jerry Bruckheimer who told him "put your shoes back on, your blowing your image." Honestly, I don't recall seeing Crowe in suspicious shoes, but he does always claim he's "5-11 and a half and a bit" or even 181.75 cm so you have to wonder if someone who didn't care about height would always be so precise. But of course there's no doubt about the importance of image in the land of make believe.

@Pierre: Nothing funny, I said that boots that look like that externally would probably be more in the 1.2"-1.3" range as opposed to a cowboy boot which would be more like 1.7" range. Obviously it would be more if there's an extra lift inside, but the same applies to Mel's cowboy boots. It's very difficult to prove or disprove someone has lifts in boots because they easily conceal most lifts.
Pierre said on 20/Dec/18
I say to myself it's funny like some people sometimes claim point-blank Brad's shoes are giving him only a fraction more than one inch , when i see how tall Brad can look sometimes in discreet shoes.1.25 iches shoes are hypermarket shoes for some,then i can imagine sophisticated discreet elevator shoes can give me easily more.

@rising: I will say about the photo with Scott Schwartz, those tennis shoes Pitt has on look exactly like the kind with the lifts built in. I can speak with experience since I've worn them myself for years. See how the back goes up awful far, straight up for some time? And if you notice, his foot seems to go up at an incline toward the heel. As far as the boots he's wearing backstage with Mel, I think they probably are built with lifts, just not so much of an outer heel. All I've seen of Pitt, especially at that time, he was wearing lifts constantly. Otherwise, I think if it did have more if an outer heel, he could've had 3 to 4 inches over Mel instead. We've all seen him on occasion looking as tall or taller than Edward Norton, and if you notice, in this particular instance, Norton has the higher ground.

Rising, people that have met Brad mostly say he is not over 5ft10. I have a good friend that met him. I told this story several times. He is 181 and described Brad as skinny SHORT and with a bad acne. This was in the 90s.
There’s a guy in the Di Crapio page that says he worked with him in a movie and this guy is 5ft11 and Pitt was 5ft9 - 5ft9.5
He is ALWAYS in some kind of trick- lifts, insoles, super high heels, custom shoes, elevators etc
It’s part of his image. John Travolta is obligued to wear his wig and some celebrities cannot say they’r gay. Part of contract stipulations. Some have to get married even if they’re not a couple. This is Hollywood, dude.
Why Pitt is NEVER barefoot besides anyone? Not even in the beach!
There’s a story about Russel Crowe at a party that he jumped in the pool and was barefoot and people were joking about his size after taking off his shoes.
Another story about Ben Affleck wig is well known. These guys are slaves of his image.

Remember Pitt with Mel Gibson backstage in 2009. The video was taken down, but I took screenshots before it was. I thought Pitt at least looked around 1.5" taller: Click Here especially since he's further from the camera in the last 2 stills, but Mel looked to have perhaps half an inch thicker footwear with cowboy boots: Click Here while Pitt wore boots with a more normal heel not bigger than 1.2"-1.3" range: Click Here I think Mel is pretty much bang on 5'9", though he's still listed here at 5'9.5", but Pitt seems like he could be 2" taller barefoot considering footwear.

Also, here's Pitt in sneakers and shorts(harder to hide lifts) with 6'8" Scott L. Schwartz: Click Here Brad looks least 5'11" there, imo since he reaches around the lower part of Schwartz' mouth, though Schwartz might have his teeth apart making his mouth a little lower, but it's still tough to see him more than 9" shorter assuming Schwartz head is at least 10". Granted, Pitt may have a camera advantage since his head probably shouldn't look as long as Schwartz, but he still looks taller than 5'9" Andy Garcia did with a slouching Schwartz: Click Here There are obviously some photos where Schwartz looks under 6'8", but he claims 6'10" and he can look 6'9"-6'10" range such as with 5'9.5" listed James Marsden: Click Here and 6'1" Ed O'Neill: Click Here

@Dan Alvarez: I'm surprised you have him that low because usually those who guess Pitt at 5'10" max are usually the ones who believe he wears lifts/elevators constantly. Btw, any idea what kind of boots Pitt was wearing at the Spike Guys Choice Awards in '09 with Mel Gibson above?
Zorwii said on 17/Dec/18
@Dan Alvarez 2.5 cm is a big difference. You can notice even 1.5 cm more than you think. I guess there's just 1 cm beteween them. I can't see Leo over 179 cm where did you get those 181-182 ?
Dan Alvarez said on 16/Dec/18
Definitely think Leo is about 1.5-2” taller than Pitt. I see Leo as a barefoot 5-11 for sure. Pitt is more like a 5-10 barefoot or even a strong 5-9.5 barefoot.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Dec/18
I wouldn't be surprised to see Pitt looking as tall or taller than DiCaprio when the film comes out, but Pitt did look shorter than Jon Bernthal at more than one event and Bernthal is no taller than 5'11" himself so you never know.
Mister lennon said on 16/Dec/18
Pitt is a 179-180 guy.
Dicaprio a 181-182 guy.
But pitt have a better posture, so the could look the same or pitt could looks a bit taller sometimes.
Zorwii said on 15/Dec/18
@berta Brad Pitt is a tricky guy and known to use advantage shoes. He never was 181 in his life! 181 = 5'11"25. That's taller than his own claim. In 1992 he claim to be 5'11. I'm sure he is a bout 178-179 guy rounding up to 180. He looks a strong 178 guy to me. Dicaprio is not over 179-180 come on. He nevr lloked taller than 5'10.5
berta said on 14/Dec/18
i think he will pull of the same height ore 1 cm taller than dicaprio in the new movie. i dont believe he is that height but i just think he will look that height. In reality i think dicaprio could be 181-182 and Pitt 180-181. I just cant see brad pitt only being 179 as the average guess. He have a couple cm on damon and 1-1,5 cm on clooney for example and cloney was never under 179 peak
Bradley said on 14/Dec/18
He'll be taller than Leo. Brad wants the 6 and over number everywhere. I think he failed in Troy.
Zorwii said on 14/Dec/18
I've always thought Brad is a 5'10" and maybe he was a strong 5'10". Leo more over 5'10.5 I don't see him over 179
CDS said on 13/Dec/18
It will be interesting yes, in the film and the premiere to see Leo and brad measure up,, I guess it will be a case of, who's got the better lifts??😂 didn't someone post a few pics from the 90s of the 2 of them that had brad easily edging out Leo? And I believe Leo would've been of adult age by that time.
Editor Rob
I would be surprised if Brad at the premier doesn't manage to look as tall or taller than Leo.
Bradley said on 12/Dec/18
Brad will be giving Leo fits in the film wearing built up customs. He's 5-10.
Maickeyguess said on 11/Dec/18
@Rob I agree the new movie coming soon. First time where we will see both acting.
Brad has a better posture than Leo that's the reason sometimes Dicaprio looks about 1 cm shorter. In my opinion Leo is 1 cm on Brad. I give 178.5 peak Brad pitt and strong 179 Leo Dicaprio.
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Dec/18
I wouldn't go as high as 182 cm for Leo myself. Maybe 181 as Rob has him. Although I finally sort of agree with Pierre in that I did think Leo could look a weak 5'11" in that video with Obama. Seeing Leo and Brad in the film and especially at the premiere will be very interesting.
Pierre said on 11/Dec/18

HonestSlovene said on 11/Dec/18
Clearly Di Caprio has the edge, he's almost 182 cm and Pitt a strong 179 cm.
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Dec/18
2 cm is more towards the upper end for loafers with a small heel like that. If he had a bigger insole, I'd expect his foot to sit higher in the shoe: Click Here While Clooney's boots had a pretty thick heel and thick sole: Click Here I don't believe at all that the actual standing difference between Brad and George at the Chinese Theater was 1.5". I don't doubt it could look that due to low angles and George's posture, but it can also look barely noticeable when when the angle favors Clooney.
Maickeyguess said on 10/Dec/18

I see both at 178.5 cm nowdays. Still youn men but maybe they were 179 on a good day.

I think it will be interesting to see if either has the edge, at the moment I couldn't tell if Pitt actually seems the more solid 5ft 11 that moment.
Pierre said on 9/Dec/18
@Rising=For me this type of mocasins give a minimum of 2 cm by considering heels more insole Click Here Click Here Click Here and his feet seems to be curiously not very horizontal in this beige shoes . In your first and second pic Brad tilt his head on the side of the camera so we can not see the real difference between them ,in this i think i'm not generous when i say there is 1.5 inches between them and here not real difference of postures= Click Here Click Here Click Here .Of course i'm not in his shoes so i can not claim they are elevator shoes....Then maybe he wears elevator socks who's know...
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Dec/18
@Pierre: 3 cm would be a minimum for motorcycle boots and 2 cm pretty much near the max for loafers. George's boots look a little thicker than that to me, but for arguments sake I'll say it's maybe a 1 cm difference. I at least agree George was standing a little taller in those shoes. Though I don't believe Pitt was actually standing 1.5" taller at the Chinese theater. Posture and the angle can exaggerate the difference to look like that in some photos, but I think the real difference was smaller. Click Here Click Here Click Here Clooney could look 177 cm at times due to his posture. As I said, I'm unsure of whether Pitt wore elevators to that event one way or the other: Click Here Click Here And Sizemore is closer to the camera there.

MJKoP, I thought it was clear that the pics were what I wanted Dan to see and not what these girls think. I just watch the pics where you can clearly see what tricky shoes he wears. That was it, dude, just that. Stop the drama.

But it’s good you seem to know about all of those pretty well. I find them funny, I guess because I’m hetero and don’t feel to hate women. You brought up the BB forum discussions about exes and whoever etc (?) I’ve no idea about it but if you know it means you read them, ok. Thanks for the info.


Telling *me* to "stop the drama" when you just posted a link that had already been shared multiple times to a thread that couldn't possibly be more drama-filled...and then implying that I'm not hetero and that I hate women?

If you just wanted to (re)post the pictures, you could've saved and uploaded them...I just made some light commentary on the ridiculousness of such a petty discussion(actually makes some of the more absurd back-and-forth debates here seem reasonable by comparison, and that's saying a lot), and you're going to chastise me like that?

I simply dislike thinly-veiled insecurity and self-loathing that manifests itself in the unfair and skewered critiques of other people - regardless of the gender. Believe you me, men aren't even remotely lacking in that area.

Your admonishment of me seemingly stems from your own unpopular opinions of Brad Pitt's height. I think it's pretty clear that Pitt stands at a flat or solid 5'11" - no more, no less....and you feel the need to denigrate my views since I called into question the motives and reliability of those who seem to share your estimate.

And you bringing up my personal tribulations posted elsewhere(off the topic of height, in the proper forum) only speaks on behalf of your moral character - or perhaps a lack thereof. That was pretty low, IMO
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Dec/18
@Pierre: Nobody said motorcycle boots were cowboy boots, but they add a lot more than loafers. The first pic is another low angle, but the second one is good. Brad looks about an inch taller there, maybe 3 cm tops. That's the same Venice Film Festival so in that case, you're right that there's a pretty dramatic shift from the photocall to the premiere. Here's 2 more photos: Click Here Click Here It's probably fair to say Pitt stood about an inch taller at the premiere, but half an inch shorter at the photocall. Pitt looks to be wearing Tom Ford and his heel is probably 1/4" bigger than Clooney's at the premiere, but that still leaves maybe half an inch unexplained. As for the 3rd pic, I don't know what any of their footwear is there.
Pierre said on 6/Dec/18
the famous motorcycle shoes and angles of the camera.Motorcycle shoes are not cowboy shoes,and the angle of the camera can not explain this variations.Other pics Click Here Click Here Click Here
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Dec/18
I do think that 2007 handprint event is one case where Pitt MIGHT have wore elevators, but the actual difference was nowhere near that big without Clooney slouching and a low angle to exaggerate the difference. It's around a 1 inch swing in footwear between that and Venice since Clooney's motorcycle boots are going to add considerably more than Pitt's loafers. Very possibly 2 cm more, but a half inch more absolute minimum. Then you consider Pitt's shoes about 1/4" thicker at the handprint/footprint event and that explains part of how Clooney goes from around a half inch taller to an inch shorter or close to 1.5" at times with his slouch. The other event it looks to me like Pitt might have elevators at is the Mighty Heart photocall at Cannes, also in 2007, though they also could just be designer Oxfords with 1.3" stacked heels again or possibly chelsea boots.

@Dan Alvarez: I remember your posts and they were some of the most insightful identifying Pitt's footwear. I searched after the last time you posted and did find the Tom Ford Oxfords he's worn and also the Tom Ford Chelsea boots he also likes the wear. Both have 1.2"-1.3" heels, which is a bit bigger than an average men's shoe, but not huge. The Guidi boots you also identified are obviously bigger, but more comparable to a cowboy or logger boot than an elevator.

Oh, not *that* thread again...don't think I've seen so many raging ovaries in one place before(but then again, I ain't the type to look). I'm honestly about as far from one of those deplorable 'Proud Boys' as you can get, but that website looks to be the estrogen-coated equivalent of the bodybuilding.com forums - where often-anonymous men gather 'round to talk about how hideously fat and ugly their supposed exes and the likes of Margot Robbie are.

In short(pun not intended), I'd take that "evidence" with a planet-sized "grain" of salt.

Dan Alvarez said on 27/Nov/18
I’m going to squash all this “ tricky footwear “ nonsense once and for all. So countless people in here and all over the net have commented on how Pitt’s footwear appears strange or “ tricky “ when he’s on the red carpet. You can even google Brad Pitt elevator shoes and you’ll see where people are making the comments. So most of you know me, one of the Dan’s in here, as the one who’s always been able to comment or identify on Pitt’s footwear.

So here goes, I discovered that the “ tricky “ looking shoes that Pitt always seems to wear whenever he’s dressed up on the red carpet, are in fact Tom Ford “ Gianni “ lace up oxfords. He’s worn them many, many times, as these seem to be the staple of Tom Ford’s footwear collection. And anyone who knows about fashion or Brad Pitt fashion, knows that he almost ALWAYS wears Tom Ford when he wears suits or tuxedos. So go ahead and google Tom Ford Gianni Oxford shoes and you’ll the curvature in the shape of the shoes that make people think they look like elevator shoes.

@Pierre: I don't know if you're saying you can't see his ankles or more specifically his ankle bone. Here's a bigger version of the pic: Click Here If you mean just the ankle bone then I could circle where I think it is. My point about Cruise is how obvious a 1" lift is unless concealed by pants or a higher cut shoe. 1/4" to 1/2" lift would probably be a different story, though.
Pierre said on 18/Nov/18
@Rising=Brad has maybe an internal heel and you will never see him by his ankles because you don't really see his ankles in the pic.The fact Tom's shoes are looking very generous does not mean Brad's shoes are only classic shoes
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Nov/18
It's not as easy to see the ankle bone with dark colored socks, but it looks to be just above the shoe, which is completely normal for fairly low cut dress shoes. If Pitt had any sort of lift anywhere near an inch, his ankle would be noticeably higher like this: Click Here The only way to hide that is to conceal the ankle. For that reason, I can't tell if Pitt has lifts most of the time he wears boots like this: Click Here There's also nothing about the design that seems more typical of an elevator than a regular shoe.
Hijoputamos said on 16/Nov/18
@Pierre, those are custom elevators. Regular dress shoes with lifts would be a lousy thing to do by a A list celebrity.

@Pierre: As for his shoes on Conan, his ankle is visible and looks to be normal height so I personally doubt he had lifts, but his height is debatable compared to Conan because of Conan's posture and where they're standing.

He's like 5'11"!
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Nov/18
@Pierre: Good pic. Pitt looks about 1.5" taller than George, though I believe he's standing better, but Brad is only an inch taller than Damon even though their eye levels are farther apart and Damon also oddly looks taller than George, though I estimate Damon about an inch shorter at their peaks. I'm not sure about Pitt's shoes either as they look like a Chelsea boot to me, but it can be tough to tell the difference between a Chelsea boot and small elevator. Btw, in that one pic George looks about 4-foot-3 so now I see what Trump meant about George being short!

@Rob: Thanks, posture was one reason I wasn't so sure. With that in mind, I'd have guessed more 4" than 3", but posture and distance from the camera makes it tricky.

@Pierre: I have guessed Lou as a solid 6’3 earlier on in my time on Celebheights so that’s possible. I definitely have Ralph as around 6’5.5. It’s possible he was maybe 196.5 peak as well but no lower. He looks up around the 197 mark

@Hijo: I didn't say anything about whether Pitt was wearing lifts or not. I haven't seen Pitt wear lifts on the beach, but I think the point you make about Troy is interesting. Brad surprisingly didn't wear lifts promoting the movie on Conan's show: Click Here I have doubts Conan is a full 6'4", but I think 6'3.5" range give or take so of all the movies and of all the talk show hosts, you'd think Pitt would wear lifts there. Btw, you can compare Brad in dress shoes to a shoeless Conan in this video: Click Here I'm curious how many inches everyone sees between them? Whatever difference there is, subtract at least an inch, possibly 3 cm for Pitt's shoes and you have an idea of the difference.
Editor Rob
He might not have been quite standing as tall in his troy outfit there, but 3-4 inches maybe.
Canson said on 11/Nov/18
@Rising and Pierre: I think by the time Ali met him (some time back about 4-5 years back if I recall), he had lost a full inch in height if not a bit more. I think a peak Lou may have been 192 cm but not 6’4”

@rising =Even if Lou is 6"3' in 2003 i don't see only one inch between him and Eric Bana,Lou always slouch in the pics and Eric is straight,no less than 2 inches imo
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Nov/18
@Pierre: Yes I have. Ali thought Lou was about 6'2", but conceded he could be 6'2.5" as well considering Lou's casual posture so I can't argue that possibility since Ali had a full photo showing Lou didn't look taller than he estimated. But Ali met Lou many years after the pics of Bana and Lou and I think after most or all of Lou's knee and hip replacements while I don't know how many surgeries Lou had by the time of the Bana pic. Obviously if Bana was only 6'1"(which I personally disagree with) then Pitt would have almost no chance of measuring 5'11" and even 5'10.5" would be a stretch.
Pierre said on 9/Nov/18

@Rising=After watching some pictures Lou and Eric Bana i would give him more 6"1'range than 6"2'range. Even 6"1' at maximum
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Nov/18
@Pierre: I already posted some of my thoughts about Lou on his page a few days ago, but I'll just say yes, he looks closer to 6'2" there, but it's far from an ideal pic for comparing exact height due to posture with Lou posing and flexing rather than standing tall. The second pic is even harder to judge, but I wouldn't guess less than a 3" difference there. But back to Bana, most people regard him as a full 6'2". In fact, many use to argue him taller than 6'2" flat.
Pierre said on 6/Nov/18

Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Nov/18
@Pierre: The only possible way to see such a small lift(1 cm) would be if you can view where the ankle is, but the dress shoes do look more low cut than the loafers as you mention, though they're a different style. The dress shoes are thicker on the outside so it's possible Pitt makes up some of the difference with a bit more insole. I've even seen 1/4" lifts for sale and I have doubts you could spot something that small even if you could see the ankle. Btw, Ferrigno could be just around 6'2.5" now, but the pictures with Bana are from 2003 and imo, Lou was still at least 6'3" back then.

Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Nov/18
@Pierre: I wasn't talking about the heels in Burn After Reading, just the ankle. Pitt almost never wears less than an inch heel, but at least for that scene, he did not have an internal lift.

@Hijo: Bana is definitely more than 2 inches taller than Pitt, but Bana is supposed to be 6'2" unless he's really 6'1", he should be more than just 2" taller than Pitt.

Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Nov/18
@Pierre: I posted a good shot of Brad's loafers on on 21/Oct/18, but it would be ideal to see a shot from the back with his pant leg not covering any of the shoe. We're probably not going to agree on this so I"ll post the best shots I can find and everyone can make up their own minds: Click Here Click Here It doesn't look like his foot sits that high in the first shot, though you can see the back in the second shot is high enough to accommodate a small insole, but this is as good of a shot as you'll find and it still looks within the range of a normal style men's loafer, imo: Click Here I think any angle is because Pitt has a small heel, probably about the size of the heel and very thin front. People have debated the rumors about Don Johnson having lifts in his loafers on Miami Vice and I definitely wouldn't say Pitt's foot is higher in his loafers than DJ. I'm not ruling out Pitt having a little extra insole in his loafers, but I don't see any way he has enough to match George's motorcycle boots. He'd need close to an inch and there's just no way, imo, but remember, Brad looked shorter than George at that event so it makes sense he had less footwear. Incidentally, here's a shot from the actual film Brad was promoting: Click Here You can see Pitt at least wore normal dress shoes for that scene because they're low cut and show his ankle at a normal height.
Pierre said on 3/Nov/18
@CDS=i would be not surprised if his beige shoes were a little bit more advantageous than Georges motorcycle shoes.
Pierre said on 2/Nov/18
@Rising= you would eventually watch in web the angle over the foot of classic mocasins with only a very slim external heel and after watch the angle of elevator mocasins(over the foot) with very slim external heel and compare with his
CDS said on 2/Nov/18
I look at those red carpet pics of brad and Clooney, Pierre posted, and it does look like brads shoes have a little bit of a custom lift built in. But if you notice, George's legs look a tad longer than normal AND he has some extra pant leg, the kind you see used typically to conceal lifts. So I'm wondering if Clooney was wise to all of brads "heightening", and decided to do a little "lifting" himself??

@Pierre: I don't think you can see exactly where Pitt's foot is in a shot like that, but I don't think so. They look like regular loafers to me with a small maybe 1 cm heel and a fraction insole. I don't see much of an angle either so I'd guess they add maybe 0.7" give or take. Certainly not as much as motorcycle boots.

Rising - 174 cm said on 26/Oct/18
@Pierre: I agree George's boots don't add 2" and 3 to 3.5 cm seems right or 1.2"-1.4" range because motorcycle boots will typically have a minimum 1.25" heel, but a maximum 1.5" along with a platform at least half an inch. But I still stick to 0.7" range for Pitt's loafers including a small insole. I agree George winds up about a half inch taller so it wouldn't be so surprising if they were the same height based on that, though I think Pitt generally looks the taller of the two.

Btw, speaking of Brad and Leo, here's something that looks like a real pic with Johnny Depp from around 1993: Click Here Here's another: Click Here Depp is 5'9" max, imo and could be 5'8.5" while Leo is probably 5'11" or what Rob lists him, but I believe he was still noticeably shorter than that in 1993. Is this a real recent pic of Pitt and Johnny Depp? Click Here Depp does wear thick boots, heels and those platform Apollo Creepers so he can look taller at times, but still interesting since I'd expect Brad to look noticeably taller.

Pierre said on 23/Oct/18
@Rising=Then watch others pics Brad at venise event when the camera on the side of Brad=his beige mocasins are looking higher than classic mocasins on their rear portion under his ankles to my eyes.In addition George's motorcycles shoes never give him 2 inches to my eyes,more something like 3 or 3.5 cm,something like mocasins a little bit perfected or maybe even a little bit less than perfected beige mocasins...
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Oct/18
I don't see how loafers with a small insole could add as much as motorcycle boots. I think George is 5'10" flat these days, but I don't think the injury had affected his height by 2008 since he looked as tall as ever to me.
Pierre said on 21/Oct/18
At venise event 2008,Georges in motorcycle shoes and Brad in beige mocasins with imo a slim internal heel had around the same advantage of shoes imo.Imo Brad was looking a little bit shorter than Georges by considering all the pics.Georges suffered a spinal injury during filming of Syriana in 2005 and i think he lost a fraction of height since this date.My guess= in 2008 Georges around 5"10' and Brad around 5"9.5'
Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Oct/18
@Pierre: George's dress shoes certainly aren't less than 1", but still a common style and I doubt they'd give more than 3 cm either. Maybe 1.1"-1.2" range. It's true that Pitt's shoes don't seem much thicker externally, but they are higher cut so as I said, you can argue it's likely Pitt had elevators there. I've owned both cowboy boots and motorcycle boots for years and in general and cowboy heels are larger, though motorcycle boots have thicker soles, but while I haven't measured in both, I have to say I feel taller in the cowboy boots than motorcycle boots. Motorcycle boots are thicker than regular shoes, though and they could add near 1.5". In any case, they add considerably more than Pitt's loafers, which do have a small heel and loafers can come with an insole as well so an estimate of 0.7" is fair. Granted, elevator shoe manufacturers do make loafers, but this is a good shot showing the shoes and where Pitt's foot sits: Click Here Imo, those probably don't have much more than an insole typical of a loafer and I think this explains why Pitt looks shorter than usual at that Venice event whether you compare to George, Tilda Swinton or even look at his proportions. I have to disagree about George's posture, though because imo his slouch is pretty noticeable for some of the handprint/footprint ceremony while he still has fairly casual posture at Venice, but not too bad, imo: Click Here If Pitt didn't have that hat, we could see exactly how much taller George stood, but I doubt Pitt has a bigger forehead. I will say that 5'10.75" is too high for George, imo so if we say he was 5'10.5" and hitting 6' or just under in boots then it seems doubtful Brad reaches the 5'11.7" or 182 cm you'd expect a 5'11" barefoot guy to hit in those loafers. Just my opinion anyway.
Mister lennon said on 20/Oct/18
Less than 179 for brad is highly unlikely.
Zampo said on 19/Oct/18
@Hijoputamos:

I think Beckham is 5'10.75-5'11 (which would look more or less a flat 5'11). 180 cm suits him, whilst Brad would be nearer 179 cm, I would put him in the weak 5'11 category. I can't see Brad as low as 177 cm. I think the average guess is reasonable.
Hijoputamos said on 18/Oct/18
Zampo, Beckham is not even a full 5’11 guy.
David 179
Brad 177
Zampo said on 17/Oct/18
Someone like David Beckham would edge out Brad Pitt. 5'10.75 is the probably the most I would go for him but also wouldn't go much lower than 5'10.5, like Michael B Jordan. Shows you how guys with very good posture and about 1 cm off a mark can pull off looking that mark comfortably.
Pierre said on 17/Oct/18
@Rising=Imo George's motorcycle shoes don't give him lots of height compared to his shoes in chinese theater wich have a comfortable heel too,motorcycle shoes have not the same advantageous heel as cowboy shoes to my eyes.Imo Brad's beige shoes have very probably a internal heel because the beige portion which is just under his ankles are higher than classic mocasins to my eyes.Georges maybe isn't standing always very straight in chinese theater but Brad is not always very straight too;and Georges in Venise event isn't standing more straight than in Chinese theater imo.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Oct/18
@Pierre: Sometimes I've thought his height varied a bit too much as well, but then I wonder if it's partially perception. But I'm also trying to judge the actual shoes as best as I can. Clooney had the advantage at Venice because he had motorcycle boots: Click Here while Pitt had loafers with small heels and probably a normal insole, which I don't think would add much more than 0.7". So if you even compare that to a typical red carpet where Pitt has a 1 cm heel advantage, that's potentially a swing of 3 cm footwear alone. But I don't think Pitt has ever been nearly 2" taller than Clooney. It might look that way if Pitt is closer to the camera and Clooney is slouching, but I'd be surprised if Pitt ever stood much more than an inch to maybe 3 cm taller than George at an event. Interestingly, Pitt doesn't have big heels at the handprint/footprint event, but while I don't if he has elevator shoes or not, I will say they're high enough in the back to support a lift: Click Here and there's somewhat of an angle at the laces: Click Here As usual, everyone can make up their own mind, but just as far as variations go, you expect Pitt to look an inch or more taller in cowboy boots such as he wore in Thelma and Louise compared to some scenes where he wore Converse in Across the Tracks. More recently, you'd expect him an inch taller in Guidi boots than in those loafers in the Venice pics.
Canson said on 16/Oct/18
@Matt99: the more I see of him, the more I can agree with Greg actually. But only on his morning height. I think he’s the same as Greg 5’11 out of bed and 5’10.25 so he’d be a strong 5’10” imho. Best case is maybe he’s on the cusp of a weak 5’11”. He also listed himself at 5’10 bedore

@Hijoputamos Clooney is a decent 5'10" and he looks the same height, sometimes he edges him out by 1-2 cm at most.
Pierre said on 14/Oct/18
@Rising=If his shoes are not really advantageous,i can not explain to me the variations of heights of Brad next to Georges Clooney,one day he looks nearly two inches taller than him(ex=Chinese theater),one day Georges looks nearly one inch over him(Venice 2008), George's shoes looking always very classic to me.I think the explanation is partially in your answer=Brad in this shoes seem to have long feet quite a fuel times to me,as if the size of his shoes was comfortably above his foot size.
Hijoputamos said on 13/Oct/18
@HonestSlovene, if he was 5’11 he would towered Robert Redford in Spy Game or Geena David wouldn’t have towered him in Thelma & Louise when in both cases he wore huge heels. A 5’11 guy wouldn’t be clearly shorter than a weak 6’ guy, check Kalifornia movie. Pitt wouldn’t be shorter than George Clooney who is 5’10 when Brad wore regular shoes. Check those pics coming off the jet with Damon and Clooney. Also Pitt wouldn’t be shorter in thick soles than Willis barefoot...
God, the list is so long...
I’m not gonna refer to the pics with Gwyneth but Gwyneth is very far from 5’10
HonestSlovene said on 12/Oct/18
@Original I'd go with the higher end of that range, 5'10"-5'11". It's just an opinion though.
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Oct/18
@Pierre: A thick heeled boot like that will naturally have an angle anyway so it's difficult to tell if there's anything extra inside. I did read a review for those Guidi boots where one person mentioned buying them big and using insoles, fwiw. With that said, I haven't seen anything to convince me Brad could be shorter than 5'10".
Original said on 6/Oct/18
OK so 5'10, right guys? not 5'9 or 5'11.Mystery solved.
Pierre said on 6/Oct/18
@Rising=by considering the heights of other celebrities we compare to Brad are lots of time a little bit rounded up on the paper ,i think you can even envisage 5"10' like a rounded up value for him.
Pierre said on 5/Oct/18
@Rising=I see always the same thing in your pics on 04/Oct/18=i see a big shoe angle over his feet and high shoes.For me there is an internal heel.I think this shoes give him a good gain of height,easily 2 inches to my eyes
Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Oct/18
@Hijo: Thanks, I appreciate that. And I don't have an estimate for Pitt at the moment beyond keeping an open mind for anything between 5'10" minimum and 5'11" max. There are several heights that are mysteries to me, but Pitt might be the biggest one. Let me put it this way, if someone could ask Geena Davis how tall Brad is whether through twitter or some other way, I'd probably take her estimate as most likely.

@Jtm: She has heels here and does look shorter in most pics: Click Here There are group photos with Jeff Goldblum in them as well and he doesn't look as tall as I'd expect with Bill Murray. That's the photocall at the Berlinale Film Festival.
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Oct/18
You can see Pitt wearing those Guidi boots and Jolie wearing heels with a decent platform while promoting World War Z in Tokyo and London and then the premiere for Maleficent a year later: Click Here Click Here Click Here He'd get 1.6"-1.8" of actual height since the heel is supposedly 1.75" or 2" while Jolie could be getting close to 4" from heels with that sort of platform. I think she's 5'6", but I'll go with Rob's 5'6.5" listing for this comparison: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here And video: Click Here Maybe winds up a difference of 2" or so, but it can oddly look just 1.5" in those pictures. If she reached 5'10.5" in those heels then he looks 6'0"-6'0.5" in boots, but while I'm sure most would agree Pitt can hit 183-184 cm in some of his footwear, I don't know if I've ever seen Jolie reach 179 in heels whether she is or isn't 169 barefoot. Even if Pitt doesn't have a small lift or insole and he's only getting 4 cm, he looks like he'd be no more than 179-180 cm barefoot and certainly not the 181 cm range some think.
MJKoP said on 4/Oct/18
This right here folks is even why the most reliable-looking photos can prove to be anything but. Lena Dunham in flat sandals, with her legs further apart, appearing to be on lower ground, AND farther away from the camera seems to tower over a booted Brad Pitt, who doesn't seem be losing that much posture. Is Lena six-foot-four? Is Brad five-foot-nothing? Nah, it's just an optical illusion...and part of the reason why many people put too much emphasis on selective photographic "evidence".

@Hijo: You know I have seen that and even posted that myself, though Swinton has visibly bigger heels than the other event while Pitt looks to have more like loafers with a small 2 cm max heel so you expect Pitt to measure up differently, though maybe not to that degree. Although, Jon Bernthal still looks taller than Pitt to me: Click Here and Rob met him as well and guessed no more than 5'11".

@Greg no one loses below 0.5inch throughout the day, if so that’d be very uncommon. Pitt probably wakes up 5’11.5 range then falls a bit under 5’11 at night.

Rising - 174 cm said on 1/Oct/18
Pitt wasn't wearing elevators in 12 Monkeys. Looks like a decent heel that would give him an advantage over what Willis was wearing, but that's not the same thing. Remember, he seemed shorter than Willis. Bruce could have always been 5'11" or he could have been the 5'11.5" peak Rob gives him. Troy could have been because Achilles was supposed to be tall like most Greek heroes. That's just conjecture on my part, but Pitt did wear normal dress shoes promoting the film on Conan's show.

@viper: I don't think Rob is convinced Pitt admitted to being 5'10" since the source is basically hearsay or a rumor. I think Rob has looked at Pitt with some people he's met and thinks he looks about what he lists him. I'm not saying Pitt is or isn't that tall, but I think that's part of Rob's thinking. For example, with Giancarlo Esposito and Steven Yeun last year: Click Here Pitt looks at least 3" taller than both and if you figure Esposito's heels make him the same height as Yeun than Pitt does look at least close to 5'11", especially if Tilda Swinton is 5'10" accounting for both her heel and her crossing her legs. Pitt wore low cut shoes, which I remember Rob said looked normal: Click Here
Animus said on 1/Oct/18
You guys are hilarious. There is zero chance he is below 5'10. And there is virtually no chance either that he is below 5'10½. It's simply not possible for him to stand as well as he does with so many other actors, if he wasn't terribly close to 5'11. I would not go below 5'10¾ and 5'10⅞ or legit 5'11 seems exceedingly likely to me.
Matt99 said on 30/Sep/18
Rob do you think Pitt would go under 5’11 in the evening? Like 5’10 7/8 5’10.75?
Editor Rob
He might fall under it a little, but I don't think he'd end up 179cm flat.

Custom elevators in 12 Monkeys, huge wedge could get 2.75 easy. Those are Stalloney '75-'76.
CDS said on 28/Sep/18
@Smitty: that's the height I'd give him too, would make complete all around sense early in his career, why he had the 5'10" (pretty close barefoot) and 5'11" (pretty close in shoes) listings. With the hair, that easily puts him in the 6' range, and with the lifts, easily over the 6' mark, which he does look on occasion. That's the height I've been saying for years. And btw, 5'11" is typical what someone would claim at that height.
Smitty said on 27/Sep/18
He definitely wore elevator shoes in his scenes at the asylum with 5'11 Bruce Willis in 12 Monkeys. Click Here
Pitts wardrobe for that scene was longer pants to cover the heel of the shoes. Click Here

Pitt was the only one in the scene wearing shoes like that. Willis was in paper slippers. As in Troy, everyone else had sandals on, Pitt was the only one in boots.
I'm going with 5/9 1/2 to 5'9 3/4

@Rising=No less than two inches imo
Rising - 174 cm said on 25/Sep/18
@Pierre: Here's some more photos: Click Here I can't see where his ankle is with his pant legs covering the top of the boot and the external heel could be bigger than the 1.2"-1.3" heels he had in the 2009-2012 red carpet pics. As I said, I don't know about his footwear myself, but if someone's ankle bone is visible above the top of a chelsea boot then it usually means there's a lift inside and you're right that an internal lift with a boot like that would give around 2".
Pierre said on 20/Sep/18
@Rising=(Picture on 16/sep/18)= This shoes seems to me very high and there is not enough room for his ankles in this shoes imo,then his ankles are somewhere over the shoes,and then there is very probably an internal heel.Plus the generous external heel,the gain with this shoes seems to me no less than 2 inches imo.
Animus said on 19/Sep/18
The absolute lowest I'd go is 5'10¾. Unless he's a perpetual lift-wearer for which I see only scant evidence, he's too similar in height to a guy like Edward Norton not to be at least 5'11. So, once again, I settle on a rather solid 5'11 for Brad Pitt.
Bradley said on 17/Sep/18

Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Sep/18
@Pierre: Elevator shoes will often look smaller to a casual observer than a number of popular men's styles like logger boots, cowboy boots and cuban heels, but that's because elevator shoes are meant to hide much of the height inside while the others aren't. 1.8"-2" is A LOT for a men's shoe without lifts inside. Even 1.4"-1.5" is. If you know what to look for then I think you can tell the Dons 2.4" are elevators, but most wouldn't notice. I'm not sure how big the external heel is and I'd have to see them from the side view to see the angle at the laces. As for Pitt wearing actual elevator shoes, the photocall/press conferences at the '07 Cannes Film Festival for "A Mighty Heart" is about the closest I've seen: Click Here Don't know if that's just a designer chelsea boot or an elevator myself, but people can make up their own minds on that. And Redford looked more 5'10" plat peak to me as 5'10" Robert Shaw actually looked taller in "The Sting", 5'9"-5'9.5" Paul Newman looked similar in that same film and 6'1" Sam Waterston looked 3" taller in "The Great Gatsby" Now at 80+, Redford only looks around 5'9" or so.
Hijoputamos said on 16/Sep/18
Bradley, so you mean Redford is 5ft8 and reaches 5ft10 with his customs shoes?
Ok, so same case with Pitt wearing his high heel boots and who knows what inside of them.
Both cheat, so Pitt should be 3 inches taller and not the same heigh unless Pitt is not really 5ft11 as Rob has him, blink blink...
Make the math, lads!
Canson said on 16/Sep/18
@Brad: 2.5”? I don’t know. He’s genuinely just a weak 5’11” guy barefoot
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Sep/18
There's no way shoes like this: Click Here give anywhere near 2.5". Or these: Click Here Click Here These lace up Oxfords with 1.3" stacked heel are close to what Pitt has worn at some red carpets: Click Here Some of these do have an insole so along with the 1.2"-1.3" heels, he'll have a good advantage over many shoes or perhaps even most at these events. He might even put in a little extra lift, but those boots and shoes would look far different close up if they were giving him near 2.5". The boots he wore in Spy Game would give 1.8"-2" and the Guidi boots will be pretty close so merely a decent internal lift could get close to 2.5" in those, but the Chelsea boots, Oxfords etc. he wears to red carpets would require a Robert Downey Jr. lift to get near 2.5".
Pierre said on 14/Sep/18
@Rising=i really doubt his shoes are always only 1.8.Maybe sometimes but the others times they 're looking more than this imo.Just wearing shoes a little bit generous and a seconde insole you can gain around 1.8 inch then with elevator shoes with discreet technology 1.8 seems to me very low.In this site,in the page"elevator shoes"there are brown shoes wich are looking classic shoes,with only a classic external heel and the gain is around 2.3 inch,with a external heel or internal heel(or both) a little bit thicker the gain will be logically more than 2.3 inches.In the picture before/after=Rob next to Jenny,this shoes give 2.4 inches but are looking very classic in the picture.With more expensive luxury shoes /custom made shoes with a little bit more sophisticated technology i can imagine even bigger gains.
Bradley said on 14/Sep/18
Redford was 5' 10.5" 1 foot from me on the big stage at Universal in 1986 filming Legal Eagles. 5-10 today, same as Pitt but Pitt wears the wedged customs cause he wants to be 6 feet, irritating to other actors.
Rising - 174 cm said on 13/Sep/18
@Pierre: Actually, 1.8"-2" of actual height gained is the range many celebrities seem to prefer for formal events as they'll look like a pretty normal style to most. Most elevator shoe manufacturers advertise the highest point at the back of the heel and lift rather than the actual height gained compared to your barefoot height. The marginal height gained also gets smaller the bigger the heel or lift. For example, all things being equaled, the difference in actual height between a 1" and 1.8" heel will be greater than the difference in actual height between a 2" and 2.8" heel. Of course, the actual height you'll get will vary somewhat depending on the quality, design etc. But in Pitt's case, I'm not talking about elevator shoes. He's favored designer chelsea boots with what look to be 1.2" stacked heels for many red carpets over the years. But I won't have an idea of how much height those boots give without knowing the height of the insole too. Even then, it'd be very difficult to tell if Pitt had a small lift in there because chelsea boots often have an angle so a small lift might not look much different than a chelsea boot without one.

@Hijo: As for Redford, he looks 5'9" more recently as you can see from the photo at the top of Shia Labeouf's page. He might have still been closer to 5'10" when Spy Game was made. How much did Redford's boots add in the film, about 1"? And yes, I remember Geena Davis taller in flats than Pitt in cowboy boots. I could swear there was also a scene to compare Pitt to Michael Madsen, but I can't remember if it was a deleted scene. Assuming she has a regular twitter account, someone should ask Geena how tall she thought Pitt was.

About the comparison between Brad and Robert Redford, to me, at least, seems quite obvious... For one, Redford doesn´t strike me as a tall dude, never has, even when young, he´s a 5'9 guy, maybe less, 5'10... on his best days, and even so, in that movie spygame, Pitt is always around the same height as he is, he´s already aged, whearing flat shoes, and take a look at Mr. Pitt cuban soles... damn... judging by that, Pitt would be around 5'9...probably (not maybe, probably) less, around 5'8... because of those cubans, and that assuming he had nothing inside the shoes... So, from these facts alone, plus the naked pics with Paltrow, is only obvious to assume, the hottest hunk hollywood has produced so far... is average height, 5'9, at most.
Pierre said on 12/Sep/18
@Rising=There is shoes(or boots) in web which give you easily more than 1,8 inch and they re looking like classic shoes or boots.Search"luxury elevator boots men".1.8 inch seems to me very low for elevator shoes,i personnally bought classic shoes with classic external heels,there are not elevator shoes,so without shoe technology to gain height,and this shoes give me 1.26 inch.

@Rob: I'm gonna watch that soon actually. I'm not saying your listing is impossible either, nor am I arguing he's 5'10" flat.

I wouldn't say Pitt "never fails to look tall." He can look 5'11.5"-6'0", but he doesn't always look that. For instance, if Rick Schroder was already the 5'9.5" Rob lists him at 19 then I'd say Pitt looked 5'10.5" in Across the Tracks, maybe just under 5'11" all things being equal. But I don't know whether Pitt had an advantage for the scenes he wasn't wearing Converse and whether Schroder is/was more 5'9" flat. He didn't look particularly tall in Thelma and Louise or at the True Romance premiere considering he had cowboy boots for both and there have been the odd occasions(e.g., Burn After Reading Venice photocall, Inglourious Basterds Berlin photocall) where he hasn't looked that tall with a recent example being events for Fury where Jon Bernthal was generally taller and Logan Lerman looked about 3" shorter. He did look tall in Meet Joe Black even if Anthony Hopkins had shrunk to 5'8.5" by 60 and tall in The Devil's Own assuming Ford was still at least close to 6'0".

I remember Pitt clearly taller than Redford in Spy Game, but he only looks slightly taller in those behind the scenes pics even though they're in costume. I don't think Redford was ever taller than 5'10" flat, but he could have still been near that at 64 while 5'9" is more like his current height. According to this article on Frye Campus boots, the vintage 70's boots came with 2.4" heels while the boots made since the 80's have 2" heels: Click Here There's a comparison between the two at the bottom of the page and this article includes a measuring tape next to the heels: Click Here Fwiw, the events in the film take place in 1985 and I'd have thought Pitt's boots had about 2" heels, but that doesn't rule out the 2.4" either. Either way, a 2" heel is very large by today's standards and that's one film where Pitt's footwear was in Vin Diesel territory. Not unlike the Guidi boots he wears nowadays, which are advertised as having a 2" heel and a thick sole.

Here's pretty much what Pitt likes to wear to red carpets: Click Here Thanks agzin to Daniel Alvarez for the info Pitt wears Tom Ford. I can't find any info on the insole. Because a Chelsea boot covers your ankle and has somewhat of an angle, it'd be virtually impossible to tell if Pitt slips a small lift in or not. Here's what basically the same boot looks like with a 1.8" western heel(i.e., cowboy heel): Click Here I don't think Pitt wears an external heel that big to red carpets, but that's just my opinion. He might have on some occasions or had heels made bigger than 1.2", but smaller than 1.8". All of those red carpet photos I posted a while back are from 2012(Golden Globes, SAG awards, Cannes Killing Them Softly premiere).

Pitt can hold up well in some films, I think if anybody catches World War Z, do see the scene near the end, he is with Peter Capaldi and, well I certainly wouldn't argue Pitt looks 5ft 10 in it!

There are plenty of photos where Pitt is taller than Redford. You suffer from selection bias.

ROB, Please have a look at this article and the pic of both and compare the heels....

Why a 5ft11 guy wears a 2 inch heel and barely stands taller than a 5ft9 ish guy with flats??

This is very strange...
Hijoputamos said on 5/Sep/18
Animus, that doesn’t make sense. Brad is 5’11 on his shoes. He wore MASSIVE heels beside Redford in Spy Game and was barely taller than 5ft9 ish Robert.
Bradley said on 4/Sep/18
He looks 6 foot or more with footwear in every movie cept running with the Trojan Army.
Original said on 4/Sep/18
5'10 barefoot, maybe 5'10.25" at his 20s-30s. Slim, good proportions and of course lifts and he could appear even 6'0.
Pierre said on 3/Sep/18
Imo not 5"11' next to Rick Schroder in "Across the Tracks".I see Rick as a weak 5"9' and i see Brad at maximum one inch taller than him(by considering Rick wear lots of time slim heels in this movie like Converse shoes).My guess=176/177
Animus said on 2/Sep/18
Never fails to look tall. I just saw “Meet Joe Black” and he looked above-average. Zero chance he is 179cm, in my opinion.
Rising - 174 cm said on 29/Aug/18
@MJKoP: Yeah, I don't look anything like my brother either. He's also 4" taller than me. Pitt and Redford were even likely within an inch of each other's heights or a half inch going by Rob's listings.

@MJKoP: My oddly-structured sentence was probably so specific because quite a few people have argued with me when I've compared the two. The resemblance has been striking since Moneyball and never more than the new film. I thought they looked like father and son in Spy Game.

Well, let me put it this way: Redford and Pitt can pass for blood relatives a heck of a lot easier than me and my own biological brother. 😁
Bradley said on 20/Aug/18
He did look like Robert Redford Jr. in "Spy Game".
Film Fan said on 19/Aug/18
This is another one of those controversial celebrities when it comes to their height. It is difficult to say if he falls closer to 5’ 10” or 5’ 11,” we may never know.

You could've just ended that sentence after 'Redford', if you were to ask me. :D

@Gracian I'd say he's a typical 179-180 cm guy, just like Beckham.

I have just found out that the new Quentin Tarantino film starring Brad Pitt is called 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'.

It doesn't get released until next year! 😭😭😭

Yesterday I heard 'Brad Pitts' being used as Cockney rhyming slang for 'Tits'! I've heard them referred to as 'Thrippeny Bits' before, but never by the name of one of my favourite actors!

I'm sure that would greatly amuse Brad! One of the reasons I like him so much is because of the comedy he incorporates into his roles, even when he's playing a baddie!

@ viper - Hi! So Brad is in a new Tarantino movie, is he? What fantastic news that is! I loved him in 'Inglorious Basterds', didn't you? So funny, right down to the way he spoke, not to mention the headbutting of Hans Lander*!

Brad gets 5ft11, his peak height, because there is just the one box and besides, I don't think a fellow of his calibre is befitting of a before and after facility quite yet!


* Spelling? 😏 Well, I think it's right!

He looks awesome in the new Tarantino movie
Daniel Alvarez said on 31/Jul/18
@mikes. Thanks for posting that. I’ve never learned to post videos or pics on here. I’ve seen that video. You can see that his walk is pretty strange. It’s super obvious that he’s wearing inserts or they’re custom shoes. If you see his stride, you’ll see it’s high stride. Super awkward. And look at where his knee is. No way his leg is that long from his knee to ankle. You can clearly see his knee when he’s walking. He can pull it off when standing but once you see that knee poking out when he walks, it’s obvious his leg is way too long, especially considering those Native American 60’s moccasin booties things are completely flat with no heel or even a sole.
Rising - 174 cm said on 30/Jul/18
And Pitt isn't 181 cm. He's clearly shorter than Jimmy Fallon: Click Here Not a lot shorter, but definitely shorter back to back. And he had a bigger heel than Gosling at the Golden Globes.
Pierre said on 30/Jul/18
@CDS= Imo the reality is =Laurence Fishburne by all the pics looks about 1 inch taller than Matt Damon who looks maybe one inch taller than James Corden by some pics in web....
@Rising 174= Imo Orlando Bloom looks a strong 5"10' if James Corden is a strong 5"8'...

CDS said on 27/Jul/18
@Pierre. I missed your earlier comment. Maybe this should go on fishburne s page, but he has terrible posture. See the movie, "last flag flying" where 5'10" Bryan Cranston pretty much is even with him, most of the movie. That is, until near the end, when the 2 are in military uniform, with appropriate posture. And the closer I look at these pics. Reeves does look a tad taller than Pitt, if you even out the horizon in the background. A lot if the angles are slanted. If Pitt was a true 5'11" guy, especially in those thick heeled boots, he could easily edge out Reeves , or any solid 6 footer. But instead, in spite of all that, Reeves still comes in a little taller, and that's even with Pitt having a little better posture...
Rising - 174 cm said on 26/Jul/18
@Daniel Alvarez: Great posts, you really did your homework on this! This is the most details I can remember on Pitt's footwear. I've done a few quick searches on Tom Ford boots and found a few similar to what Pitt has worn. The Campus style boots do look like the Spy Game boots. He may not need any lift to look taller with boots like those, especially co-starring with an aging 5'10" Robert Redford. Those have a 2" heel, but are a bit thicker all around than say a 2" Cuban heel boot, so he'll likely get a bit more height. Brad certainly doesn't spare any expenses on his footwear either! I'm not convinced Brad wears lifts as most here are, but Meet Joe Black was one film I thought he might have worn them in because he could really look about 6' with Anthony Hopkins. I wouldn't doubt it in a film like Troy either so he could seem more larger than life as Achilles. Pitt also had his most impressive physique in that film as he weighed about 180 and was still pretty lean. It is worth noting that Pitt wore normal dress shoes while promoting the film on Conan O'Brien's show: Click Here As you can see, ankles are in a normal position. You can at least roughly compare his height in shoes to Conan in socks in this video: Click Here I think Conan is more 6'3.5" barefoot rather than 6'4", but Pitt should look 6' compared to him with Conan in socks, though I'm not sure he does.

And I do actually agree with Pierre on Orlando Bloom. He looks more 5'10" flat to me, maybe a fraction over.
Pierre said on 26/Jul/18
I like this instructive and entertaining site.
Daniel Alvarez said on 25/Jul/18
The boots he’s wearing in the pic above with Claudia Schiffer are Guidi front zip boots in Cordovan leather from the 2009 a/w season. They don’t give much lift, so I’m sure he’s probably got a small lift inside. He wore those many times in 2009 and they were the boots he was wearing when he crashed his motorcycle in LA in 2009. Just google brad Pitt motorcycle accident.
Daniel Alvarez said on 25/Jul/18
Rising, the brown suede Chelsea boots he wore at the end of last year and early this year are Tod’s footwear boots. I know they’re saying online that they’re blundstones but after months of searching and identifying details, I’ve confirmed they’re Tod’s. Right now he’s shooting once upon a time in Hollywood and he’s wearing some Native American navajo suede moccasin/boots. I’m pretty damn sure those are custom to give him 2”-2.5” in boost.
Daniel Alvarez said on 25/Jul/18
Excellent post, rising. You’re spot on. The boots you think are Guidi are in fact, guidis. The red carpet shiny shoes are almost definitely Tom Ford dress boots. Ford also makes shoes/boots with big heels. The boots in spy game are 1970’s CAMPUS boots. The style is called CAMPUS. and yes, they’re huge. Although those may be just regular boots in spy game, there is no doubt that he does wear custom shoes/boots for certain films. Especially for Troy, basterds, meet joe black, and I’m sure for moneyball and Benjamin button.
Daniel Alvarez said on 25/Jul/18
@cds. Agreed. What I mean by them being very high end boots is that Guidi uses leathers from Horse, buffalo, cow, and even donkey. Yea, those are some pretty rare leathers that not everyone uses.
CDS said on 24/Jul/18
@gracian, all your pics are 2000s to the present. Go back and check out pics of brad measuring up to other actors, say pre-1996, prior to when the "heightening" began, and you'll see he's all of a sudden had a growth spurt...in his thirties! And he's had several 5'10" listings, again early in his career, including himself putting that down, as this page clearly states.
Pierre said on 24/Jul/18
@Gracian=Orlando Bloom next to James Corden looks about 2 inches taller than him by some pics in web.Eric Bana looks lots of time the same range height as Karl Urban(listed 6"0.5') or Chris Pine(listed 6"0.5') in some pics(in some others pics he wears some times shoes which are looking advantageous shoes).
@CDS@Daniel Alvarez@Frankie=Keanu Reeves (pictures event 2017 John Wick Chapter 2) looks maybe 1.5 inches taller than Laurence Fishburne who looks maybe one inch taller than Matt Damon (pictures event Venise 2011)...

If you look well Pitt and Reeves are similar in similar angle Reeves could look 1cm of course Pitt Can look taller in better angle , Reeves is 6'0,5 today plus 2cm fiotwear about 186cm Pitt seems about 185cm in shoes that gives no more than 4cm and could give 3,5cm wich is already thick , i dont think he lifts inside of course near 1,5in fiotwear and excellent posture he could look near 1in taller than his Real height he has to be about 5'11 as he Can look over it in shoes that dont even give 2in ,
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Jul/18
@Daniel Alvarez: I agree with you on style. I prefer boots and also don't any own sandals, moccasins or ankle socks. And good post identifying another pair of boots Brad wears and I'm going to go out on a limb and say not many posters here besides yourself own a pair and could tell how much height they add. It looks like he might be wearing Guidi boots here as well: Click Here But just because Brad is wearing a biker-style boot there, it doesn't mean he never wears boots that could be described as "cuban-type heels". In fact, Brad looks to have typical Cubans in this photo: Click Here It looks like he wore Cuban heels more recently to the Allied UK premiere: Click Here Obviously Brad has worn many different types of boots. He's also worn Palladium boots a few times in recent years: Click Here and Blundstones: Click Here

But "cuban-type heels" is generally used to refer to Brad's footwear at red carpet events where he wears dress boots with heels a bit bigger than the standard 2-3 cm range. Here are a few examples with the last two closeups: Click Here I don't know if those actually are Cuban heels, but I think it's a decent enough description and gets across the important point, which is that Brad gains an advantage from 1.5" dress boots. Interestingly, in the photo I posted of his Spy Game boots on July 14th, the front looks sort of similar to the Guidi boots in the closeup on the left. I don't know what kind of boots those were in the film except that they're thick with a raised heel about 2". Probably custom made for Brad to wear in the film and probably worn in part to look a little taller, though I don't believe he has an extra lift inside.
Gracian said on 22/Jul/18
I do not understand people who want to argue that Pitt has 5'10" or at best 5'10.5". In my opinion, the range of 178-9 cm is too low for him! For me, Brad looks like a typical 181 cm guy. Here are some arguments:

Rob, or 5'11.25" is possible for him?
Editor Rob
Pitt at times over the years has pulled off looking comfortably over 5ft 11...but a genuine 5ft 11 guy can look tallish at times. The right photos, the right posture and footwear can help Pitt.

I think his own 5ft 11 early claim is quite reasonable. Many people would guess him over 5ft 11, but a big chunk think he's 5ft 10.75 too....
